SPAR Group Trading Results Reflect Resilience in Competitive Markets! Okay, let’s share what’s going on at SPAR Group as we chat over coffee. So, the SPAR team, you know, people who look after their home base and those SPAR stores in Ireland, Switzerland, Poland, and South Africa, just threw out some information. They are riding slightly higher because their turnover—that’s basically the amount of revenue they make—has grown 9.3% over the past 20 weeks through Feb. 16. Pretty cool, right?

SPAR Group Trading Results

They have a way of working for themselves, mixing things up and progressing from the way money circulates around the world. But let’s not sugarcoat it; finding money was not easy. Everyone is out there looking for bargains and trying to stretch their money.

Down in South Africa, their main spot, things are looking up, but not as much as they’d like. They managed to push their wholesale numbers up by 5.6%, and when you throw in the groceries and liquor sales, that’s a 6.1% bump. Not bad, but inflation’s breathing down their necks at 7.5%.

They’ve also been pushing their SPAR2U platform, which lets you shop from wherever. It’s in 403 spots now, a big jump from 201.

Over in Europe, their Irish operation is doing alright, with sales up by 7.1% in euros. That’s even more impressive when you switch it to South African Rand—19.1% up.

Switzerland’s a bit of a different story. Sales dipped by 5.7% because people are looking for cheaper deals elsewhere, including discount stores.

And then there’s Poland. SPAR is looking to say goodbye to Poland, but even so, sales went up by 2.9%. They’re trying to make a graceful exit and are still figuring things out.

They’ve promised to keep everyone posted on how the exit plans are going. And for those who like to keep an eye on the numbers, they’ll be sharing a financial update for the six months ending March 31, 2024, through June 5, 2024.

So, that’s the scoop with SPAR Group. It’s not all smooth sailing, but they’re navigating through with some savvy moves.
